A Bayesian approach to evaluating habitat for woodland caribou in north-central British Columbia 1

  title={A Bayesian approach to evaluating habitat for woodland caribou in north-central British Columbia 1},
  author={R. Scott McNay and Bruce G. Marcot and Viktor Brumovsky and Rick Ellis},
Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou (Gmelin)) populations are in decline throughout much of their range. With increasingly rapid industrial, recreational, residential, and agricultural development of caribou habitat, tools are required to make clear, knowledgeable, and explainable management decisions to support effective conservation of caribou and their range. We developed a series of Bayesian belief networks to evaluate conservation policy scenarios applied to caribou seasonal range… CONTINUE READING
